Are you talking about all programs that traditionally fall under the liberal arts umbrella, like English? Or are you talking about an actual major called "Liberal Arts"?

The latter is what I am talking about. (Ant the former is where the tech comm M.A. I am currently pursuing is classified.)

A liberal arts education is not entirely devoid of what you might want in a
"training" program. For example, my lib arts education taught me how to
observe, analyse, break down, and summarize material, be it a modern novel,
Shakespearean play, Italian film, or what have you. I organized and
communicated the results of that process through the medium of the written
page.

I too was a bit lost when I first entered college. I finally settled on
English as a major because of a dim desire to be a writer.
